Libertadores 2023 will have traditional clubs, debutants and a comeback; See the classifieds

The 2023 edition of the Copa Libertadores da América reserves strong emotions for the Fluminense fan, who will not have to face the infamous initial phase again, called “pre” in Brazil. Tricolor is qualified for the group stage in the competition that will have many traditional teams, some rookies with weird names and a comeback after almost four decades.

All representatives of Brazil are already known. In addition to Fluminense, the Brazilian champion Palmeiras, the champion of Libertadores and Copa do Brasil, Flamengo, Internacional, Corinthians, Athletico, Atlético-MG and Fortaleza are the other participants.

Compared to this year’s classifieds, Brazilian football will have one less representative. Bragantino and América-MG leave, the International runner-up enters. All others participated in the 2022 edition.

From Argentina, the traditional Boca Juniors, River Plate and Racing are guaranteed, which together have 11 Libertadores. Rounding out the sextet are Argentinos Juniors, champion in 1985, Huracán and debutant Patronato. The modest club from the city of Paraná was the champion of the Argentina Cup, corresponding to the Copa do Brasil.

Uruguay will not have the traditional Peñarol, but its biggest rival, Nacional, will be present. Liverpool, Fluminense’s opponent in the first round of the 2017 Copa Sudamericana, is guaranteed. Rounding out the list are two clubs with the lowest investment, also debuting in Libertadores: Deportivo Maldonado and Boston River. Both, curiously, have similar colors to the Flu (see the table below).

Chile will also have news. Colo-Colo, winner of the “Liberta” in 1991, is the most prominent name. The others are two newcomers with curious names – Ñubleense and Curicó Unido – and the also unknown Magallanes, who played in his last Libertadores in 1984.

It only remains to define the last two classified in Colombia. Atlético Nacional, two-time Libertadores champion, and Millonarios got a spot. See below the 45 of the 47 qualified for the 2023 World Cup:

Brazil: FLUMINENSE*, Palmeiras*, Internacional*, Corinthians*, Flamengo*, Athletico*, Atlético-MG and Fortaleza
Argentina: Boca Juniors*, River Plate*, Racing*, Argentinos Juniors*, Patronato* and Huracán
Ecuador: Aucas, Independiente Del Valle*, Barcelona, ​​Universidad Católica and El Nacional
Uruguay: Nacional*, Liverpool*, Deportivo Maldonado and Boston River
Bolivia: Bolívar*, The Strongest*, Always Ready and Nacional Potosí
Paraguay: Libertad*, Olimpia*, Cerro Porteño and Nacional
Colombia: Atlético Nacional* and Millonarios (two spots left)
Chile: Colo-Colo*, Ñublense*, Curicó Unido and Magallanes
Peru: Melgar*, Sporting Cristal, Alianza Lima* and Sport Huancayo
